Trek to Sandhan Valley

Notice the peeler next to the sleeping bag. That is a lesson learned from a previous expedition. Was going with a veteran trekkers, and experienced photography and trekking group.

The train to Igatpuri was crowded. Getting there was an adventure in itself. The traffic police made me get down from a regular rickshaw and get into a sharing (scam) one, because only those guys ply on the route between Kurla station and Lokmanya Tilak Terminus.

The safest place to stash your footwear.

And babbys. The kid was only pretending to sleep.

Igatpuri Station. We had some tasty cucumbers with masala to chill down.

The plan was to head out to the base on that night itself, but there were some problems with timings so we had to improvise.

Which was awesome, no loss. And finally we reached the camping shelf. There was a little water running beside us, we fashioned a tap from a leaf, and spent the night on a shelf. 

Took a timelapse too, and the pros did some light painting.

Walking around Borivili National Park

So went with Adivasi gang, which is an informal name for a bunch of like minded people whose interests range from photography, to trekking, to the Humanist teachings of Silo

Reverse Ring Macro Photography. Don't try this, very easy to permanently damage your lense unless you know exactly what you are doing. Basically dont move or put pressure on the focus ring, and keep it on manual focus.
